Creamery Can – Why we love serving you

The Creamery Can opened earlier this year outside Ballymena and we love serving our customers with the best local produce in our beautiful restaurant.

Hugh and I love food, love community and love a good cup of coffee!



When we set out on this adventure we wanted to create a coffee shop where people in our rural location could meet and where food would be served to the highest possible standards, all freshly made on site. I adore home baking and the wholesome country traditions that commercialism sadly has squeezed out in favour of profit margins. We are so inspired by the buzz of conversation and laughter in The Creamery Can, where friends of all ages and backgrounds enjoy spending some quality time together.



We love getting to know our customers and we listen carefully to their special requests and feedback. Hugh has farmed all his life and my background is music teaching and accompanying so this has been quite a diversification but our love of quality food and coffee has always been prevalent in our lives. Now we get to share it more publicly.

We hope that you are enjoying the food and drinks provided in the Creamery Can as much as we enjoy making them. Call in with us now to enjoy our handmade local Ballymena produce at the Creamery Can.

Fresh Soup at the Creamery Can

Here at the Creamery Can in Glarryford, Ballymena we are continually revising our menu. We add new options to the usual favourites.

This winter we have introduced beautiful home made soups all freshly made on site every morning. Our most popular is our country vegetable though our customers have also really enjoyed spiced parsnip and also sweet potato and cumin. These are perfectly complemented by our home made wheaten bread. We are sure that our soup will be a firm favourite on our menu right through the chilly winter. If you haven’t tried our soup yet then get down to the Creamery Can – you won’t regret it!

Creamery Can working with local butcher

We know here at the Creamery Can we spend lots of time talking about our caramel squares, cakes and yummy treats but we know that lots of our customers prefer our savoury snacks and meals. It is important for local businesses to support each other and that is why we at the Creamery Can work with local butcher Tom Ferguson. That means that our bacon, sausages and ham come from just a few miles down the road.


One of the best things about working with Tom is that he makes our sausages himself. Hugh from the Creamery Can has been able to go and meet with Tom and discuss exactly what we want in our sausages. When you order a fry, each sausage has been designed to Hugh’s very own specifications to make sure it has a high pork content and is a unique high quality product.

So when you get your breakfast, lunch or any savoury snack at the Creamery Can you are you aren’t just enjoying a unique view – you are also getting the benefit of local expertise and excellent produce. We love working with local businesses and producers – that is what makes the Creamery Can so special.

Caramel Squares at the Creamery Can

Here at the Creamery Can in Ballymena we gets lots of questions about our caramel square and what makes them so tempting.

Our Black Forest terrine with fresh cream and black cherries was enjoyed by lots of customers. Also look out for our Great British Bake Off inspired treats. We love the BBC1 show so much that we recreated their first ‘signature bake’ – the cherry cake ring! It was a winner. And finally after all of our over indulging on cakes and ice cream we decided to opt for a very healthy and tasty energy boost! Homemade granola with pecans, cranberries and maple syrup, topped off with natural yogurt is the perfect start to any day whether you are working or enjoying a day off!

We are a family business – run by a family to create a wider family of customers who, like us, believe in quality ingredients and home made goodness. The dream has always been to re-create what happens any day round the Reid family kitchen table with friends and family. Where the aroma of freshly baked scones or savoury dishes is common place. A sense of hearth and home. A place where folk can gather and share good food and good conversation.
